How do I use the "address in" filter option?   There seems to be NO info or tutorial how to use anything but From, To, etc. options.

Re: Email filters

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do.  The email address is not a feature------it's just a piece of information you can use in the To: or From:  fields when setting up a filter.  Or do you mean something else?

Re: Email filters

When you set up email filter, there is a list of options:  From, To, BCC, Subject, Message, Header, etc, etc.   ONE of the options is labeled "Address in".   When you select it, then it shows four pull down menus starting with "Address in" , "From" "in" and "contacts", and each of these have various options, e.g.   "in" can be "in", "not in", etc.  

It looks like it would be useful but what each combination of the four menus actually does is confusing.

Re: Email filters

It took me a bit to figure it out, but I think the "In/Not in" refers to the "Contacts" to the right of it---if it's in your address book or not.  So that would be a condition in addition to the others.  It' another layer you could use if you wanted to.  But yeah, I have to agree, a tutorial on this stuff would be nice.
